Journaling is one of the most powerful ways to accelerate your personal fitness development. By transforming your thoughts into writing, you gain insights you’d otherwise never see. It’s as if once relieved of the initial thought, the brain becomes free to set about thinking of ways to achieve it. Writing your thoughts and goals on paper helps to release your mind so that it can think of fresh new ideas.
Journaling can provide huge advantages to your fitness program. When you write down your goals, both short- and long-term, you free your mind from the worry and guilt that comes from knowing you need to do something healthy for yourself. Journaling helps us to take control of our lives and puts an end to any nagging thoughts that might be rambling around our heads. It helps us to organize our thoughts so that they become part of the goal-setting phase.
First you need to set goals then begin to think of ways to achieve it. Next make a commitment to record everything you eat and drink each day. Finally, you must write down all of your fitness activities and chart your progress and achievements. This will give your brain a clear view of what is working and what is not. If you continue this each day, you can make any changes needed in your diet or the amount of activity in order to increase your results or to keep things coming along as they are.
Journaling helps to keep your mind excited about your goals. Your brain needs constant stimulation and keeping a record of your goals, daily activities and achievements will reinforce positive thinking and mental well being.
In addition to your women’s fitness program, journaling really is the key to realizing the goals for your entire life. Take part in it everyday to solve problems, to gain clarity and to verify your progress in everything that you do.
